    Dislike unless you're going w/ some storm-welted, commando-soled, zugged-out tank of a monk. I have seen people do it, I think you need a cuff for sure with these, and I was serious about the casual/country details.

    Thanks for the advice, I now plan on saving and buying two or three pair of Aldens. One pair of shell cordovan loafers, one pair of suede loafers, and a great last pair of oxfords or something they do extremely well.

    Cant say I have tried it before. Not sure why but I am visualizing it not working, for whatever reason.

    If it was a suede monk and a dressy pair of cords like the Bonobos Milanese that are cut like a dress trouser, I think it would be great. Otherwise, @LosRockets is correct, it's gonna need some chunk to it.

    Buy your oxfords from Carmina at that price point. The answer you're looking for is shell LWB or NST boot or chukka or (even rarer) wingtip boot.
